Getting The Blog Back Together

As Chris alluded to in the last couple of posts this week, we're going to attempt to revive The Jeopardy Of Contentment. I spent much of the time since Christmas sick as shit and once I got done binge watching Jessica Jones, I decided to go back through the posts on this blog for a trip down memory lane. I spent hours looking at old posts and especially reading through the comments. It made me incredible nostalgic and re-lit the fire to write about music again. I'm a below average writer but Chris is good and his posts definitely ignited music discussions that my posts never did. That was the genesis of a text to him that night seeing if he'd be interested in doing it again. I miss those comment threads debating music tastes. I miss writing about upcoming shows or bands I've discovered and love. I miss feeling like there is a place I can go to and put those thoughts out there in the world.

So, what does that mean for this blog? Blogs are kind of dead, right? I use to try to constantly post concert announcements and album reviews but I know people are already going to a bunch of other sites like Pitchfork, Stereogum and Consequence of Sound for that type of stuff. I'll still post more news related stuff now and then but we want to try to focus more on stuff that can illicit some discussion and debate. We'll still post about upcoming shows and albums or bands we've discovered and love too so things won't be all that different.

Either way, I hope the few people that enjoyed this blog find it again and maybe we'll find a few new readers at the same time.
